Almost Prayed

A lot of the early Creation bands wore leather trousers. I guess it was semi-ironic- floppy fringed boys wearing rock’s most rockist item of clothing. There is some dispute about who were the first- it’s most clearly associated with The Jesus And Mary Chain and Primal Scream. Apparently though the leather trousered pioneers were The Weather Prophets, Pete Astor’s post-The Loft outfit. I think that Almost Prayed is their finest moment. It’s also one of Creation Records’ finest moments and in fact one of the entire fucking genre of 80s independent guitar rock’s finest moments. There are two versions, one the single and the other a re-recording for an album. This is the shorter 2.42 one and is perfect.
